First Day Of Spring Is Sun­day

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY

Weather per­mit­ting, Sugar Hill Church mem­bers plan their Easter din­ner for this Sun­day, March 20, the Sun­day be­fore Easter, to give mem­bers who wish, an op­por­tu­nity to spend Easter with Fam­ily and gath­er­ings. I say “weather per­mit­ting,” be­cause it has been found, from ex­pe­ri­ence, that weather can af­fect whether or not the events are pos­si­ble. One year, the only pretty day pos­si­ble was one when they com­bined the Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas din­ner.

This Sun­day is the first day of Spring, and ev­ery­one

is wel­come to come and take part in study­ing God’s word dur­ing Sun­day School, the morn­ing ser­vice, then the potluck din­ner at noon. At lunch, we have some­thing to re­ally look for­ward to, with mu­si­cians giv­ing their best with in­stru­ments and song. Also the young ones, and those young at heart, will hope­fully have the an­nual egg hunt, some­thing for ev­ery­one.

I guess we can say that March came in like a lamb, a lit­tle windy (af­ter all, it is March) but no storms. As this is writ­ten, the fore­cast is for rain, one-day the fore­cast was “con­di­tions are es­pe­cially ripe for tor­na­does in 14 coun­ties in Arkansas,” ( Wash­ing­ton county in­cluded) the next day, “only a sliver” of western Arkansas was con­sid­ered to be a marginal risk for tor­na­does. We are get­ting rain.

The news came of rain in north­ern Cal­i­for­nia, so I called our cousin and she an­swered, “It’s rain­ing!” so

it must have been a good gen­eral rain. She said that so far they had re­ceived 2½ inches, and it came so slow it all soaked in, no run off. They even had thun­der and light­ing, which is also rare.

For those who are Ir­ish, it is in­ter­est­ing to note that St. Pa­trick was sold at age 16 into slav­ery as a shep­herd, and be­came a very suc­cess­ful mis­sion­ary, mak­ing Ire­land a Chris­tian Na­tion.

Happy birth­day to Carol Snarr, Paula Cox, Tim Bai­ley, Justin Spear, Hud­son Cheatham.

Happy days, all!

Mu­sic and danc­ing are pop­u­lar at Farm­ing­ton Se­nior Ac­tiv­ity and Well­ness Cen­ter and th­ese cou­ples en­joy a few turns around the floor. Mar­garet Moore and Dale Hor­ton are to the left and Jewel and Cly­des­dale Bar­nett dance to­gether in the fore­ground. At right, Ray Carte of Lin­coln played fid­dle re­cently at Farm­ing­ton Se­nior Ac­tiv­ity and Well­ness Cen­ter. Carte and oth­ers are part of a group of mu­si­cians who play coun­try and gospel mu­sic at area venues. They don’t have a for­mal name but threw out a cou­ple of ideas: Heinz 57 be­cause they do not know who will show up to play or the Gold Dig­gers. They mainly just like to get to­gether and jam.
